the keyword.

Wouldn't this function just be
correlate(a, conj(b))
? Surely just writing that is easier and clearer than any function call we
could provide.

I guess we could try dropping them from the first release candidate and at
least get some data on whether anyone notices.

1.5 was a lonnnng time ago.
